Our first Vivid Playlist for this month (that’s right–there’s more than one!) is perfect for this first weekend of the last month of the year. It’s a little bit melancholy, a little bit hopeful, and truly, deeply tender. Enjoy it while you unpack the decorations or as a companion to your Sunday morning breakfast. It’s not going to pour the cheer on too thick. It’s got plenty of room for your heart.
Want to know something very few people know about me? The first song on the list is my favorite holiday song ever. I fell in love with Over the Rhine when I realized they could tell this kind of story and sing this kind of song.
Enjoy, friends, and remember to be gentle with yourself this time of year. May there be a hundred tiny, bright stars shimmering within your darkness.
